Martin Gardner events on Friday Oct 25

The Princeton University Press and the math department are hosting some Martin Gardner events this Friday! They’re free and open to the public.

(If you were at the previous recreational session, you would remember that Harini mentioned Martin Gardner in her presentation.)

Both of these evens sound really exciting to me! To get an idea of some of the things George Hart makes, check out some pictures on his website:
